Dopey Disneyland Squeaker Postcard

A series of 27 postcard were sold at Disneyland's Art Corner shop (in Tomorrowland) from 1957 to 1962. They are called "squeaker" cards because they have a devise inside that squeaks when you squeeze them. Some of the postcards were numbered, others not. All had the imprint, "Copyright Walt Disney Productions." Approximate dimensions: 3.5" x 5.5".

Dopey was one of the characters included in the series. "I'm Dopey - How are you!"




On the backside, the card reads, " Dopey doesn't say much, but he really enjoys Disneyland." Printed in Japan.
